Honda is recalling certain 2011 Civic models to check for faulty valves that could allow fuel to leak following a crash. The leaks cause fires and other problems. The recall affects 18,056 vehicles. The cars’ fuel pump assemblies include a part called a roll over valve that is designed to keep fuel from leaking if the car is involved in a roll-over crash. It is possible that the plastic cases that contain the roll over valves may crack or break because of a manufacturing defect. Such a break could cause the valve to fail, allow fuel to leak and increase the risk of a fire. Under the recall, dealers will inspect the fuel pump assembly and replace it if necessary. The service is free of charge. Owners can call Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
